One year after the release of critically acclaimed studio album Strange, Strange Times, Melbourne’s alternative rockers THE UGLY KINGS are heading off for the second leg of their Australian “Do You Feel Like You’re Paranoid?” tour with 9 shows in September, October and November.
Right in time before the tour, the four-piece, known for their foreboding alt-rock with blackened blues and gritty punk edge, releases a brand new official music video. “Do You Feel Like You’re Paranoid?” raises the question of developments in opinion formation in the present time, when the Internet – once the hope of freedom of speech – is often used for conspiracy theories or simple propaganda. The topic is underlined by a strong official music video!
THE UGLY KINGS on “Do You Feel Like You’re Paranoid?”:
“We’re super excited to release this brand new video for “Do You Feel Like You’re Paranoid?”, from our record Strange, Strange Times, as we are about to embark on the second leg of our Australian tour this September.
It’s been fantastic to be able to tour the album this year in Australia and what better way to celebrate than to release a new video.”
The recent studio album “Strange, Strange Times is about anxiety,” the band comments. “The world seems to be getting weirder and weirder every year and we are becoming more and more in touch with everything that is happening on earth as it happens. It’s impossible to process and impossible to make sense of. Strange, Strange Times is the low hum that we all carry around with us every day, the itch on our back that we can’t scratch, it’s the first cut in a thousand cuts. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and count to ten.”
